Sharing a Grand Prize of 2 Sassy Studio Designs digital images of winner's choice 

Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for 2 years now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born!  It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

This Week our Challenge theme is

Have fun we can't wait to see your take 
with all these beautiful colors!

Our Special Guest Designer this week is


Hello!  I'm Manderly, a housewife to Larry, my sweetheart and rock for many years. Oh! I can't forget our dog U-lee, who is our little shadow!  Growing up, there was always some kind of crafting project going on in our family.  As I grew older, Dad started wood crafts.  He did the cutting, Mom and I the painting, and we sold our wares at the old style swap meets.  We did pretty good!  I tend go full-steam into whatever I am doing...seems I live, eat and breath making cards, according to hubby! True.  I started out making cards for family, then a few years later discovered on the internet that there was a whole world of card makers that love the craft as much as I!  Such talent and wonderful people!  My favorite part of card making is the coloring.  Reminds me of being a little girl again, making sure to stay in the lines.  So much fun!  This past year, I started blogging and entering into challenges.  (Met my now BFF!)  I was so shocked that others liked my cards, too!  You can imagine my delight when asked by Love to Create to Guest Design.  Such a fantastic challenge site- I jumped at the chance!  I am very honored to join in this week's challenge with such a fabulous Design Team.  The image I chose is Dorothy from LTC's sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs.  I hope you like her.  I added a gift tag/sentiment that looks cute hanging from the pin, too. Thank you for having me, Love to Create.  You are the best!

Be sure to stop over and say hi to Manderly and leave her some love!!

Here is what the design team made to inspire you using
